Time Enough

I rarely make tags, and I mean rarely...but I so enjoyed this one I may just make some more;) I started out with a patterned paper tag (I'm pretty sure it's BG) and stamped one of the butterflies from Sweet 'n Sassy's new clear stamp release, Everyday Miracles, directly on the tag in brown ink. Then I stamped one on the scallop circle and again on another piece of paper so I could color it and cut it out. I used my Copics to color, a MS border punch and a Cuttlebug embossing folder. A pearl trail and some ribbon finished it off. I love this sentiment, such a good reminder to live in the moment. In case you can't read it, it says:
"The butterfly counts not months but moments,
and has time enough."
Make your time count today!

I might just have to make a tag as well after looking at your one Leah! This is beautiful. I love the verse and what a beautiful job you have made of the colouring.

This is beautiful Leah, love the colours. Tags are something I don't really do either but you have inspired me to start.

Wow, Leah!! You sure do a great job with these things you don't do very often -- LOL! The way you stamped the butterflies on the tag directly makes them look like an original part of the paper, and you added so many pretty details. Just fabulous!!!
